Heterogeneity in the mechanical properties of integrins determines mechanotransduction dynamics in bone osteoblasts

Aban Shuaib, Daniyal Motan, Pinaki Bhattacharya, Alex Mcnabb, Timothy M. Skerry & Damien Lacroix We know that the effect on the skeleton of brief periods of exercise persists for over 24 hours – effectively bone remembers what loads it has experienced and uses that information to adapt its structure.  This tunes the skeleton to become strong enough to support habitual ...
